I wanted to do it ages ago but waited until Chaise could fully sit up. What I do is sit him in an empty toddler paddling pool on the floor, and I tipped a bowl of Jelly in with him. He LOVED it. He managed to move onto his front so he was swimming in it!
I could do with some ideas for more stuff to put in the pool. So far I thought:
Cornflour and water
Pieces of fruit (orange, apple, pineapple)
Then less messy stuff like:
Scraps of tissue paper
a toilet roll
I've decided against playdough as its too salty, and things like pasta spirals incase he chokes.
It's really not as messy as you'd imagine as he goes in the bath straight after and the pool is only small so I wash it out in the bath after us
But yeah I'd love some more ideas, and experiences of what other peoples LO's have enjoyed playing with
you can get that eatable paint, also sensory rice play dough theres lots of things these days that you can buy even eatable paper! haha Custard is a thought who wouldnt love to be in a pool full or custard or rice pudding mmmm xx
Ooooo I love the idea of squirty cream and custard!
I'm not too keen on stuff they can't eat, chaise puts everything in his mouth, and I know some paint is non toxic but I would still worry a lot. Plus Chaise is only 6 months but I will do paint when hes older
